Arlecchino’s Leaked Animation Is A New Level Of Cool From HoYoverse


  • Arlecchino’s leaked animations in
    Genshin Impact
    4.6 showcase unique idle poses and weapon transformation.
  • Boasting agile battle animations, Arlecchino’s leaked Charged Attack involves twirling her polearm for AoE damage.
  • The Pyro character’s leaked Elemental Skill and Burst show dynamic moves involving red thorns and Pyro-infused attacks.



Arlecchino’s entire animation reel in Genshin Impact 4.6 has been leaked, showcasing what may be one of the coolest sets available so far. Aside from being the well-known Fatui Harbinger, also called The Knave, Arlecchino is one of the most anticipated playable characters in the game. She was leaked long before the release of Fontaine and, with the arrival of the Nation of Hydro, made her debut as an NPC. Now, Arlecchino’s release in Genshin Impact 4.6 has been officially confirmed by developer HoYoverse, though details about how she operates are still scarce.

Nevertheless, as the game moves toward Version 4.6, more leaks about the upcoming patch are shared and, in the most recent one, her entire animation kit was showcased in a video. In footage obtained from the Version 2.6 beta that was shared by a user on Reddit, it is possible to see all of Arlecchino’s idle animations, as well as how she walks, runs, and attacks in the game. The leaked video also highlights Arlecchino’s Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst in Genshin Impact, making for what may be one of HoYoverse’s finest animation sets.


Genshin Impact 4.5: All Characters & Weapons In Chronicled Wish

Version 4.5 is introducing a third limited-time banner type in Genshin Impact, offering characters and weapons that haven’t appeared in a while.

Arlecchino’s Leaked Animations In Genshin Impact 4.6 Are Pristine

As seen in the leaked video, Arlecchino has some very nice pieces of animation. One of her idles sees her sitting on a spiny red throne she creates. Another, which is a lot cooler, has her phasing as if she were glitching. The idle animation does not allegedly move Arlecchino around, but changes her poses in unexpected way and hints at her secondary form – which is likely only going to be seen once she enters her weekly boss fight in Genshin Impact 4.6, which was previously leaked as well.

Walking and running seem fairly normal, but things get noteworthy with Arlecchino’s attacks, as seen in the leaked footage. When using her signature polearm, the weapon unfolds into a scythe. This is a very example of weapon transformation in the game – and it does not require her to enter an alternative stance. Instead, when she is using the polearm, it becomes a scythe, as if she were of an exclusive weapon category in Genshin Impact. Arlecchino’s leaked battle animations are agile and have her moving around a lot as if she were something of a well-trained dancer.

Her leaked Charged Attack sees Arlecchino quickly advance and finish the move with a small physical AoE by twirling her polearm around.

Arlecchino’s rumored Elemental Skill then sees her trigger a series of red thorns that emerge from the ground in front of her and finish with her leaping toward that location to finish the move. Because of her Pyro Vision, it is safe to assume this leaked Skill deals Pyro Damage.

Arlecchino’s leaked Burst plays a short scene in which she is surrounded by those same thorns and then has a subtle transformation, represented by a red energy scarf that somewhat resembles Childe’s. Her Burst is also rumored to transform her regular attacks into special ones infused with Pyro in Genshin Impact.

While the leak seems credible, it should be taken with a grain of salt. Some information may be outdated and the entirety of it is subject to change ahead of her release in Version 4.6, planned for late April. Arlecchino’s release is a long-awaited one, but if her leaked animation set is true, then she might as well be worth the wait in Genshin Impact.
